Thanks to everyone who donated during the Thanksgiving matching part of the transit drive! Twelve cards were donated during the last two weeks in November. Those donations were matched with twelve more cards, bringing the total number of cards we have to 46!

That means, with almost a month left of the drive, we only need four more cards to reach the goal of collecting fifty cards by the end of the year.

As a reminder, there are two ways you can donate to this drive:

(1) Purchase an ORCA card online and have it sent to me, by following the directions here. The cost of one card is $55 ($50 in fares and $5 for the card itself).


(2) Send any amount of money via PayPal to At the end of the drive, I will take all the money people have contributed and use it to buy ORCA cards.

If you would like your donation to be tax-deductible, make sure I have your name and address so I can pass that information along to IRC Seattle and they can send you a tax receipt.
